Most helpful review for Garrett Pro Pointer

Great Pinpointer!
I have used the Garrett Pro-Pointer for going on two years now and it hasn't caused me any real problems.
It comes with its own holster which holds the Pro-pointer securely and is ruggedly built. The Pro-pointer itself is built the same way, strong, compact, light weight and meant to give you years of trouble free use.

Depth wise it will air test a penny out to about 1 1/2 inches and is very good at finding your target as its osculating tone will rapidly increase in volume the closer you get to the target.
It is also water resistance and can be made 100% waterproof by covering up the two tiny little speaker holes with "Plumber's Goop" which also helps quiet it down. I have found that the LED light is barely bright enough to use in low light conditions and the Pro-pointer won't hit on very small gold, but for everyday use it works just great and is a wonderful little pinpointer!

Oh, by the way you will get several months or more use out of one 9 volt battery, but carry a spare as it will give out without much advance warning... Good hunting!

Use feel to know where the target is
Uses a 9v battery. Point the tip upwards to turn it on. It turns off automatically after one minute of not detecting any metal. No switches to break, n oexternally moving parts. Comfortable to use and strong from probing in packed soil

Find the general location with your MD, cut a slice in the grasss and probe with this. When you are within an inch of your target, it vibrates in your hand. The closer you get, the faster it vibrates. Reach in with your other hand and pull out your coin, ring, etc.

TOTALLY waterproof and submersible. Don't be afraid to drop this in the water.

It has an auto shut off after one minute of not detecting metal so when I am probing a lot of soil, I reset the time-out by pointing it at something metal like my shoelace eyelet, metal shovel (when using one) or a metal part on my MD.

When battery is going out, it will tend to act squirrely but that is well over 30 hours of use.

1 year warranty, great communication from the manufacturer.

Best price is via DJSdetectors.com, $20 cheaper than street price.

You don't need to see any blinky lights or hear any sounds to know where your target is. Go by feel. Move along to your next target.
